Wire Embossing for Christmas

Wire Embossing with paper clips is a great way to show your creativity. Bend the clips into any shape and create flowers, trees, etc or use some shaped pieces as I have here to create a Christmas tree by embossing them in a Embossing / Die Cutting machine.


  • When I did the first card, I had my sandwich too tight. Consequently there is some cracking on the cardstock. I decided to leave it to show you that even with the cracking you can create a beautiful card.
  • The second card uses this sandwich in the Big Shot:
    • Big Shot Platform with Tab 2 open (or with the new platform – no adapters)
    • Acrylic Plate
    • Paper clips set out in the pattern you have created
    • Cardstock (lightly spritz with water if you think the cardstock may crack)
    • Thin Silicone Mat
    • White Impressions Pad
    • Check your own machine’s instructions for the correct sandwich.
  • Use Blending Brushes to add colour to the embossed layer.
  • Supplies:
    • Stamp Set: Christmas to Remember, Peaceful Deer
    • Cardstock: Old Olive, Basic White, Basic Black, Silver Foil
    • Ink: Old Olive, Smoky Slate, Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight
    • Accessories: Blending Brushes, Snowflakes & Stars Wire Elements (retired), Wink of Stella, Ornate Layers Dies
